Sn@tching snowflakes

Sn@tch a snowflake- Solar long sequin sweater, Sn@tch

Catch a falling snowflake and put it in a jar.. wait that can’t be right you would just end up with a jar of water. Oh well snowflakes would be more fun to catch on your tongue I think. My lovely flurry of snowflakes is yet another Arcade find, this wearable snow storm is part of the Moon Amore gacha.  My decorated skins is one of two FLF Catwa appliers at Glam Affair this week, I just added a hint of lip color from the Catwa hud. Other than that its all about the Sn@tch, yes this super cute long  sweater , which can be worn as a dress, is from Sn@tch is those fantastic thigh boots. Both include a range of sizes and a hud to change colors , the boots even include a couple of fun animal print patterns.

A perfect gentleman

A-perfect-gentleman

The scene was set for a romantic evening, dinner by candlelight with the perfect gentleman. Isn’t he a cutie?

Dead Dollz gift @ CrossRoads event

My ” date” for the evening is one of Mutresse’s dalmatian puppies at the current Arcade round.  My gorgeous dress is FREE.. yes you read that right it is a gift from Dead Dollz which you can pick up at the arrival point of the Crossroads event. But don’t stop there be sure to explore as this is where I picked up this sassy hairstyle from Vanity Hair.

Sarah, Insol and Menina Bonita Vanity Hair

When I picked up my Insol skin , Sarah I also purchased the lip tint and eye make-up, each is a hud of 6 variations, and they work gorgeously with other skins too, and by experimenting with the blend slider you can have quite different looks with subtle or full strength colors. The final touch to my perfect evening is the sweet snowflake earrings that are one of the Advent Calendar gifts this year from PurpleMoon Creations.

Shhh I know a secret

Shhh I know a secret

I confess it is less a secret than I let you believe, Carries Lingerie has begun their yearly countdown to Christmas!

Tied top and panties, Carries Lingerie + Candy cane Santa hat gacha

From the first of December they will be having a daily new release and today it is a series of glittery mix and match pieces. I purchased the tied top  and the panties, but there’s also two skirts, various bras, a halter neck top and a dress.. oh plus boots and shoes for Slink high feet.. so many choices. But the great thing is regardless of whether you buy one item or many , they each include a range of fittings for different mesh bodies. Also the pieces I am wearing include a hud of different sparkling fabrics so you can mix and match a range of festive colors: red, green, white , silver, gold, blue.

Skinnery + Catwa , Argrace, Vista bento hands + Pink Hustler anim

While the Christmas Countdown is on the VIP Area is open to everyone, just take the tp board at the entrance of the mainstore and you will be in a winter wonderland in no time. As well as a daily new release , which is available at half price for VIP members on the day of release, you will find displays with special sales. Scattered around are a range of gachas also which is where I picked up the cute candy cane hate. During your visit be sure to drop in and sit on Santa’s lap.. are you on the naughty or nice list this year?

Before I drop down to the details and a SLurl to Carries Lingerie I want to quickly mention a few other items in my photos.. namely my hands. Yes these are the Bento capable hands from Vista Animations and this is the first time I have used them in a photograph. The inspiration was the Pink Hustler Animations that are available at their store , after demoing all three choices I selected this one as I thought it would have the most poses I will use.. however maybe I will pop back and pick up another set, at 200L for multiple animations including mirrors it’s a fun addition to SL. The facial animations are courtesy of the add-on purchased for my Catwa Tumble head, I have treated myself to an early Christmas present of both the Bento capable hands and the Catya Bento head, so I look forward to seeing what animations become available for that in the future.

Look at my new puppy!

My new Puppy!

I’m so excited I have a new pet! Okay I know it isn’t a puppy but it IS still very cute, meet my little badger friend. I have hidden her away in the attic where she has the whole top floor to herself well along with a few extra pieces of furniture and decor. Both the decor and the pup.. badger, and some things I am wearing are all items from the current Arcade round. As usual it is packed to the rafters with fellow gacha addicts, so even though there are 3 locations for shopping there I haven’t managed to squeeze my way in . Thank goodness for wonderful yard sales, I picked up lots of items I wanted and when the rush dies down a bit I will go play a few machines and pick up the gifts available too.

Speaking of gifts my bright fun shoes are an advent gift which you will be able to collect on the 3rd December.These unisex sneakers come in sizes for men and women and in a range of different fittings for mesh bodies meaning you just slip a pair on and they fit perfectly. Be sure to grab the SLurl from the details below because this is one of the many advent calendars to visit daily!

Mari or Mata Hari

Mari gown, Sn@tch

After slipping on this gorgeous sparkling lace gown from Sn@tch I knew I was heading somewhere special for these photos. I returned to Casablanca and headed into a small alcove where this lovely informal seating area enticed me to linger.

Mari or Mata Hari?

With my new hairstyle courtesy of Sn@tch, I wanted to add something to highlight the exotic look of this blunt cut bob. This headpiece and necklace set was a rare gacha set from Zibska and the arm bracers another old gacha item this time from Aisling. With subtle lipstick in place I felt this glamorous and intriguing look was ready to step into the scene of a spy movie.. watch out Mata Hari here comes Mari!

Sweet dreams Juliette

Juliette lingerie, peach, Milk Tea

During the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday sales I picked up a few extra lingerie sets from Milk Tea, this lovely lingerie store really treats delicates.. well delicately. Always beautifully textured lace these sets are so appealing  especially for a lingerie addict like me. I am wearing the Juliette set using the omega applier, but I’ve noticed the newer ones seem to have a full range of mesh body options as well as the omega choice.. and that’s as well as the system layers for non-mesh bodies.

Over the same period of time I also decided to create several base ” body-outfits” using the many different mesh bodies and heads I own. This is mainly because I have been using only one combination for a long time and I wanted to evaluate whether it was worth keeping the others in my inventory. Well once I started I realized I liked how different these looks can be so today’s combination is a Lelutka head with a Belleza body. For future posts be sure to check out which combination I have used that day, I will be trying to use a variety from now on including a few Bento capable heads.

Sweet dreams, Juliette

Sn@tching some time to myself

Yeri-outfit, Sn@tch

Sn@tch has released a perfect outfit for this time of year..whichever time of year it is in your part of the world, the key is layers! A pair of cute black mesh shorts ( in Slink, Maitreya and Mesh sizes) worn with cosy warm tights if its cooler ( system layer or omega applier). On the top a long sleeve crochet top ( which comes in a huge range of colors in this pack), with modest bra just visible underneath ( system layers or omega applier) means that you could even pop on a mesh jacket if you thought the weather was too cold for just one layer on top, but just make sure to leave some of this sexy top showing you don’t want to hide it away when it looks this good!

My lovely hairstyle is also from Sn@tch, this has been an exciting recent development for Sn@tch lovers, finding hairstyles here too! This one is the current VIP group gift , so you might want to consider joining up and enjoying these lovely flowing tresses.

In the mood for mischief

Boogie nights outfit, NSP/Muse Nov GG

Amazingly we only have a few more days left of November, but that’s still plenty of time for you to race over to NSP/[MUSE] and join the VIP group if you aren’t already a member. The current group gift is this sexy sort dress with amazing thigh high boots, I’m showing them in this vibrant emerald green but the gift includes a hud with 3 different color choices for boots, dress, and the halter part of the dress. The two other colors are lighter shades of green with an almost opalescent quality, think mermaid scale effect and you won’t be far off it in my opinion.

My staff and pose is a gacha item , I think from the most recent FGC, I always look out for poses with props just as something different to add to photos. But speaking of gachas it is almost time for the December round of The Arcade, it promises to be bursting at the seems with lots of Christmas decor and fun ideas for small gifts for friends and family in SL. Before I drop down to the details I want to quickly mention that I received an offline email from the Truth VIP group indicating that the Black Friday sale has been extended until midday on the 29th so hit that sale if you haven’t yet,  48 of the newest releases at super low prices: 75L a color pack, 100L variety pack or 500L the fatpack.

Making a list.. checking it twice

Black Friday Sales

No not Santa, just me  making the most of the Black Friday/ Cyber Monday sales around the SL Grid.

For some information about the sales I highly recommend you check out this link on Seraphim : http://seraphimsl.com/2016/11/23/the-2016-black-friday-sales-list/.

Be sure to check out the details in particular the finishing dates, as some end today including Addams where I picked up the fatpack of this awesome leather jacket. Most things I am wearing in this look are actually not from the sales, I confess there is still some unpacking ahead of me.

Maxi Gossamer is having a select sale on some items but the necklace I’m wearing is actually a FLF offer so be quick for that too. My hair is the group gift from Truth that I wore in my last post, yes I haven’t changed skin or hair yet but I am liking this combination . Speaking of other things that I’ve found easy to wear and hard to change these fantastic boots are the new group gift from N-Core. While my lovely dress from The Oaks is not a gift you will find it at the current round of Cosmopolitan,  the fit and wrinkles.. the colors.. well let’s just say it was hard to restrict myself to buying only one.
